Do Things

January 9th, 2011

“Give up on yourself. Begin taking action now, while being neurotic or imperfect, or a procrastinator, or unhealthy, or lazy, or any other label by which you inaccurately describe yourself. Go ahead and be the best imperfect person you can be and get started on those things you want to accomplish before you die.” – the late Japanese psychotherapist Shoma Morita.

A nudge to do more, great, fun events at WTF and in our lives!

Disc Is Dead, Disco Is Alive!

January 9th, 2011

Sutthirat Supaparinya: Disc is Dead, Disco is Alive!
Installation Art Exhibition

12 January – 8 March 2011 

WTF Gallery presents Chiang Mai based artist Som Sutthirat Supaparinya’s first major exhibition in Bangkok since 2004. Acclaimed for her video installations and inter-active arts, Sutthirat’s work reports on encounters and situations that she renders into artistic metaphors. The exhibition is politically inspired and underlines the adverse social impact derived from the rapid development of technology and media. Whether it is the lack of freedom of expression, the distorted content of news and media influenced by government during Thailand’s last political crisis, or the sore-eyed bombardment of advertising in the public arena, Sutthirat reflects her acute sensitivity to politics and contemporary society  into a conceptual engagement, through installation art techniques.
 
 Born in 1973, Sutthirat is a curator and visual artist working and living in Chiang Mai, Thailand.? She graduated with a Master Scholar of Media Arts from Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst, Leipzig, Germany.  She is a guest lecturer in the “Thai and Southeast Asia Studies Program”, Payap University and Media and Communication Technology at Chiang Mai Rajabhat University.  Acclaimed for VDO and installation artist, her works have been shown in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Korea, Australia, and Italy. She has also participated in the 3rd Guangzhou Triennial in China.
 
The exhibition comprises five installations all created during 2005-2011. Two of the works will premiere at WTF gallery, portraying the interplay between the medium and the message, the mutation of meanings thereof, mediated by context.
 
The exhibition is supported by Chic39 Bed & Breakfast (www.chic39.com), Jim Thompson Art on Farm, Vodka Stolichnaya and Canon.
